I originally went to see Dr. Olsen after being rear ended on the freeway and although I have had chiropractic care in the past, I was characteristically against it. As such, whenever I have experienced injuries, pain or discomfort I’ve only sought Massage Therapy and Acupuncture.
However, after my accident I was experiencing pain from my neck down to my lower back and in my abdomen. To describe, I felt like my bones had been jolted into a very odd position which made moving them properly very difficult, I could barely move my head to the left or to the right which made driving very scary especially on the freeway and the pain in my abdomen was causing me to have and abnormal appetite (loss of hunger/food unappealing)
Yet, after having seen Dr. Olsen for only three visits I was already feeling 85% better. After one month the full range of motion in my neck recovered, my appetite was back to normal and I literally felt like a million bucks! (better than before I was rear ended and this is not an understatement). I realize that everyone’s recovery time and body response will be different and vary but such a quick response for me was unbelievable.
Most importantly, what makes Dr. Olsen such a phenomenal doctor ranges far beyond his ability to crack your bones into place. He is highly knowledgeable in many different areas of the body, how it functions, its different responses to different things and has extensive knowledge on the Thyroid gland. Furthermore, as a person who specifically has a thyroid disease and who has had many injuries and or health problems in the past, I was embarrassed to find how little I knew or understood in terms of my body structure/alignment and how it affects the Thyroid gland, nerves and receptors that feed information from my body to my brain.
It is my personal opinion that the being rear-ended on the freeway was a blessing in disguise and I would highly recommend Dr. Olsen to anyone. I would even go as far as to say He is worth traveling to from LA County.
